+## Machines
+
+- Thinkpad X220, **Laptop**:
+ - *i5-2540M, 8GB of RAM, IPS Panel*
+ - Secondary development machine running Archlinux.
+ - Two different boot config: with and without CPU mitigations for maximum
+ performance.
+
+- Thinkpad X220, **Laptop**:
+ - *i5-2540M, 16GB of RAM, TN Panel*
+ - OpenBSD development laptop running -current.
+ - One of the right USB slot has been scrapped and replaced with a USB Type-C
+ female slot that I hand soldered myself (useful for Yubikeys, as the
+ motherboard only supports USB 2.0 for that slot).
+
+- Dell XPS 9370, **Laptop**:
+ - *i7-xxx?, 16GB of RAM, Touchscreen + 4K + glossy*
+ - *Was* my main machine for university, running Archlinux and Sway.
+ - Bedrocklinux with Archlinux + Voidlinux lived some months on it.
+ - Not used currently: mixed DPI on X11 gives me headaches with external
+ screens, suckless trapped me, and there `dwl` is nowhere near `dwm`. And
+ the screen resolutions of old Thinkpad is good enough for me!
+
+- Custom-built computer, **Desktop**:
+ - *Ryzen 1600, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of NVME storage*
+ - Primary development machine running Archlinux.
+ - Used for casual gaming.
+ - Lives in a server case and in my server rack!
+
+- Dell R710 Gen II, **Server**:
+ - *48GB of RAM*
+ - OpenBSD hypevisor for my virtual machines and homelab.
+ - Is usually running 24/7 behing my VPN.
+ - Internal SSD for the system has been glued in the DVD slot, and is used as
+ the system disk for OpenBSD.
+ - Fans are always slowed down to reduce the noise impact in my office.
+
+- Sun X4170, **Server**:
+ - *32GB of RAM*
+ - Currently unused!
+
+## Accessories
+
+
+- HHKB Professial Classic, **Keyboard**:
+ - *ANSI and US layout*
+ - Buying such keyboard should be considered as an investment. It has been
+ worth it for me.
+
+- Focusrite Scarlett Solo, **Sound card**:
+ - *Gen II*
+ - I/O for my headset and microphone
+
+- DT 770 Pro, **Headset**:
+ - *80 Ohm version*
+
+- two Benq xxx?, **Monitor**:
+ - dual-screen for my primary development machine.
+
+
+## Miscellaneous
+
+- Rotring 600, **Pencil**:
+ - *black, 0.5mm*

+ to put in it.
